    Acne issues

    Recently I am noticing a lot of issue with the pimples and hair fall. This is occurring because of my oily skin. The acne sometimes becomes itchy. What shall be the good options to go with?

    Re: Acne issues

    Acne can be hormonal (your age affects this) but hair falling out is not connected to acne. Itchy skin can be dry skin or it can be from something else.

    If you are using strong acne cleansers, lay off of them for a few weeks because it may be drying out the surface of your skin and causing it to itch.

    If you have the ability to go see a dermatologist, do so- they can help figure out why the hair is falling out. A good family doctor can also run blood work to make sure that your hormones and thyroid levels are where they should be.

    In the meantime, try keeping your skin really clean and your hair as well. Use gentle cleansing products - nothing specific to acne for a few weeks. Also, make sure your pillow cases are clean; change them at least 2x a week. Oil from your hair can land on your pillow case and cause your face to break out when you lay on your pillow.

    Natural products such as Coconut oil make great moisturizers for both the face and body. You only need a little bit as it goes a very long way!

    Re: Acne issues

    I'm 48 and i still get acne.
    I didn't like benzoyl peroxide. That seemed to break me out more.

    If your acne is really bad, I would first recommend an antibiotic for your acne.
    I would recommend going to the Dermatologist and asking for either Clindamycin or Doxycycline.
    Either one of those Antibiotics did wonders for getting rid of my face and body acne.
    I would recommend 300MG of Clindamycin capsules if you get that.
    If you get Doxcycline, i would ask for 100MG per capsule.

    You should also use a good cleanser, toner and lotion with salicylic acid for your facial acne.
    salicylic acid works good for my skin.

    For body acne you can get the Neutrogena clear body scrub which has 2% salicylic acid. That has worked good for me.
